Shropshire Hills Loops

Postby Scattamah » Tue Jul 10, 2018 4:10 pm

Putting this out there for folks that might be interested. As per usual, west of the A49 (~2800m climbing) on the Saturday and east of the A49 (~700m climbing) on the Sunday for those that can be arsed after the Saturday run. In years gone by, the bailout option has been used which cuts 1000m of climbing off.

Proposing a start on the 21st July...but this could easily be moved to the weekend after or some time in August.

What sort of start and finish time for this were you thinking Scott?

@Mike - no worries fella. Sing out if you get an evening going and I'll get my skates on and drop over your way. That pub you keep mentioning sounds good.
@Ben - can start whenever, but it's sensible to get going by 10am to get the first loop in.

Very keen but need to confirm for sure, currently negotiating a pass. That sort of start time would be fine, I'd drive up early sat morning

No worries Stu. Let me know if you're up for that bivvy at White Ladies. :)

Ben...you can crash here the night before if that makes it easier.

I'll think about that one mate too many stories ,and the hangman's tree still there makes for a uncomfortable nights kip , just getting to work on your pedal , as long as no drivers come in with any defects should have it done tonight if not tomorrow mate

No hurry Stu. But that reminds me to pick up a fresh rebuild kit today, so thanks for the poke.

Thanks for the offer Scott, appreciated

Should be ok to head up first thing from here, roads should be quiet at that time

Chance of me coming up is looking good at the moment

No worries Ben. First rain in a while here this morning, so the trails should be back to their normal moist state. Might have to pull the Nanos if it goes back to normal for something with bite.

Well that's a shame, it's been good down here for ages. Are you going rigid or front suss? Have the rigid fork on my bike at the mo but could switch it over easily enough.

Cool, so no shredding, gnarr, roosting, rad and all the other stuff I can't do. I'll leave the bike as it is!
